Let's hear from the man behind the beard.

👉  Guest Details
Rick Petersen was born the eldest son of a lighthouse keeper, living on Tasman Island for the early years of his life. Rick later joined the Military and was selected to serve with the elite Australian Special Air Service Regiment (SAS). 
 Utilising many of the soft and hard skills that the Military equipped him with, as a self-defence instructor, advanced combat first aider and survival instructor, Rick has lead Kokoda treks in Papua New Guinea and taken fathers and sons into the jungles of Sumatra Indonesia.
He recently returned from Central Australia where he  worked alongside Pitjantjatjara speaking “Anangu People” at the iconic Australian landmark Uluru, gaining much knowledge and respect from the desert mob. He developed a deep interest of indigenous culture, creating a passion for traditional hunting techniques, tool making and fire lighting techniques along with university studies in Parks and Wildlife and receiving distinctions in Ethnobotany.
Rick is now committed to his rock solid vision of helping other fathers and sons rediscover their connection, character and capability under the banner of “Men of Change Australia” along with running bush immersions weekends and workshops on Survival, Bushcraft, and Adventure Treks under the Banner of “Southern Exposure Survival”.
Rick now resides on the Sunshine Coast with his wife Neryl and two sons “Arnhem” and “Tasman”.
